Here is a video of my M1 with the GO 5 port (not fully broken in) from yesterday. I started 2 laps down so i was driving a little crazy but there are a few good laps in there.

I'm not knocking your driving , but that track looks like it is a drift track . I liek the track also but seems liek its missing some dirt.

totaldomination:

There are a few weak parts on the car. Recommend replacing the top front turnbuckles (part# 116153W) with something bigger/stronger.

Replace the centershaft 8x16 bearings that support the bevel gear with 8x18 (4 in total)

Reduce up-travel on front shocks by 4mm as the UJ's tend to pop out.

Make sure you shim the diffs nice and tight to start with otherwise you will strip the gears. Recommend 2 shims on gear side and 1 on the other.

You will need rear toe and anti-squat blocks for the rear.
Part#'s 506501, 560505, 560506 and 560507

Recommend replacing front shock shafts with rear to allow more droop.

Once you've built the car, make sure you put in on setup guages. I found the measurements supplied during building didnt even come close to the stock setup.

A good motor would be the OS VG, Werks B3, STS... plenty more but all those are under $200 and very good.
if among those 3 under $200, STS is the best especially with his crazy power 21T. Custome team engine.
